Confirmed: Hull City v Arsenal line-ups: Ozil starts

Hull City KC South Stand

Arsenal visit Hull City this evening. Here's a look at how the two teams line-up...

Hull City host Arsenal hoping to record a second impressive home win in success.

The Tigers beat Liverpool 1-0 a week ago thanks to a goal from Michael Dawson, which has helped relieve pressure from them in the battle against relegation.

Without those three points, Steve Bruce's side would have been coming into this fixture in the drop zone, but instead have an opportunity to extend their one point advantage over 18th place Sunderland to four points.

Doing so against Arsenal however will not be easy, a side which beat Liverpool 4-1 last month.

The Gunners are the Premier League's form team, and have won five of their last six games. Arsene Wenger's side have also won their last four away matches in succession.

Arsenal beat Hull 2-0 earlier in the season, while the Tigers will also be out for revenge considering this is the first time the Gunners have visited the KC Stadium since the two sides played last season's FA Cup Final at Wembley.

Arsenal overcame a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 after extra-time.
